    O.k. I just bought the following:

    Case:
    APEVIA(ASP)|X-QPACK2-BK/500 RT

    PSU:
    500w (came with case)

    Hard drive:
    160G|WD 7K 8M SATA2 WD1600AAJS

    CD Drive:
    COMBO LITEON|SHC-52S7K-05 SATA BK

    Motherboard:
    ABIT AN-M2 nView 7025 AM2

    Processor:
    AMD|A64 X2 4200+ 65W AM2 1M R

    Memory:
    1Gx2|A-DATA ADQVE1A16K R

    Video Card:
    XFX PVT84JUDF3 8600GT 256MB R
    ---------------------------------------

    My background:
    Build 20+ systems
    Computer Programmer
    Fixed a lot of computers in the past

    The gist of it all:
    Ok, I got the parts 2days ago. I put it all together and the system booted up fine. First thing i did was change some bio's settings:
    CDrom first boot
    Changed the splash screen to none

    Next I popped in Win XP Pro SP2, Install started out fine. when the computer needed to reboot, it did, and for some reason the monitor didn't come on...
    I held down the power button and tried again. Nothing...

    Things I thought was the problem, but isn't:
    -- Reset the CMOS to see if that would fix the problem, and didn't work.

    Power supply: I tried 2 different PSU's and neither of them worked for it. One of them was bigger: 600w the other one was a 500w

    Video Card: Tried 2 different PCI-E VC's in it, same thing, monitor wasn't receiving any signal.

    Ram: I bought 2 sticks of ram, tried one at a time, still nothing.
    I don't have any other DDR2 ram to try, so I ran out of testing on that. (First system with DDR2 ram)

    I removed the ram to see if the motherboard would do its Beeps. It did nothing.

    Monitor: Tested it with the computer I'm using now and another one that has been using it. Works fine.

    Processor: Checked out the processor, no burns on it, looks normal.

    Motherboard: All looks normal, checked it out hard core.

    -- When installing all hardware, I made sure to be grounded and static free.

    So thats where I'm at. I have no idea what I'm missing; My guess is its the motherboard, but I wouldn't think it would be.

    I hope I gave enough information >.>;
    Any help would be great! Thank You

    Hi and welcome.

    Have you tried to eliminate the possibility of something shorting against the case? I'd hook it up on the outside of the case to rule that out.

    Hooked it up outside the case, No contact with anything else. Also, just had the psu and motherboard hooked up. Monitor still didn't come on. I unplug the battery for a bit, and plugged it back in, still nothing... I'm at a lost

    Think Motherboard is faulty? All fans are working though, processor fan and video card fan is working.

    Any other idea's?

    I'd agree with you on it being the motherboard :(
